“Mini-Loveless” hunter knife/bushcraft knife

Robert Waldorf Loveless a.k.a. Bob Loveless or RW Loveless, was born on January 2, 1929 in Warren, Ohio, USA.

His works and results in knifemaking continue to inspire many bladesmiths, including myself.

He was a true pioneer, who wanted to make people understand that a knife may be beautiful and elaborate, but it is still a utility item.

He died on September 2, 2010 and “it left a vacuum in the cutlery world” /Jim Merritt/.

This knife is designed for hunting, especially in small game areas, but its size and universal design make it fit for performing jobs around the house. It can also be an ideal tool if you go camping

The slotted bolster ensures tighter grip and greater protection which makes this knife fit for bushcraft and hunting purposes.
